Bulls benefit as James sits with strep, beat Cavs 117-99

CLEVELAND (AP) With LeBron James missing from Quicken Loans Arena, the Cleveland Cavaliers were reminded again just how tough life can be without their star.

James stayed home with strep throat while Dwyane Wade scored 20 points and Jimmy Butler recorded a triple-double, leading the Chicago Bulls to a 117-99 victory Saturday night.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said he wasn't sure how long the Cavaliers would be without the four-time MVP. Cleveland struggled as it often does without James - they are 4-19 without him since he returned to Cleveland in 2014, including 0-4 this season.
